Contact lens extended wear increases the permeability of epithelium to sodium fluorescein (P(dc)). The exact mechanism is not known. However, changes in P(dc) likely result from either corneal hypoxia or mechanical trauma, or both. We explored the effects of one-night continuous wear with either high- or low-Dk/t soft lenses on P(dc). The results show that(More)
Our previous studies on microdissected kidney tubule segments indicate that the failure of vasopressin (VP) to increase cAMP content in collecting ducts of mice with hereditary nephrogenic diabetes insipidus (NDI mice) is due to abnormally rapid cAMP catabolism via cyclic-3',5'-nucleotide phosphodiesterases (PDE). Furthermore, the VP-stimulated cAMP(More)
